A Powerful Voice for Fathers and Families of Children with a Disability or Special Health Care Need

  • Two dads hiking with a kid in a wheelchair.
  • Father and son sitting in zipline gear awaiting their turn.

We do our work by connecting men with each other and with resources and information, by training men to tell their story and advocate for change, and by working to promote inclusion.

We firmly believe that:

  • Those who identify as male are superb resources for each other

  • Those who identify as male have needs of their own when they have a child in their life who has a disability or special health care need

  • The voice and perspective of those who identify as male need to be heard

  • As an organization and as individuals we need to advocate for equitable access to the community for those with disabilities or special health care needs, and their families
